The "East Coast, Southern California" town depicted in the final scene is actually a left over 1920's Chicago set. Note the "S.M.C. Cartage Co." building in the background after Billy gets vapour actioned to death. The infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre took place in the S.M.C. Cartage Company garage, Chicago 1929. See more »
The back doors on Billy's van are closed when he's pulling out of his driveway in one shot, but when the cops pull a U-turn and question him, the shots through the windshield of the van reveal that one of the van's back doors is open. See more »

Yes, anyone who saw the MST3K version is aware that Leonard Maltin gave Laserblast two and a half stars, and this simply proves that he is insane. Now, the film itself centers on Billy, a young man who looks like he has problems with heroin and shirt buttons. Billy is sort of taunted by Sherrif Fuzzy Marshmallow, then Eddie Deezen & Co., so he goes to the desert. Seems logical. Upon arrival in the desert, Billy finds a laser gun that was left behind by two turtles minus shells. Billy soon begins destroying things, and Bill Bixby shows up in town. Billy's thinner than life girlfriend insists Billy go to Dr. Roddy McDowall, and the good doctor removes a lump of metal from his chest and calls a Lenscrafter technician.
Don't bother trying to understand what's going on in this movie, it will just make your head hurt. No good acting, I don't even think it was directed, and written by a chimp with ADD. Do not watch without the safety net of MST3K. 1/10
